This second volume in the trilogy has up until now had stories that are continued from stories in the first volume. This is the exception to that rule so far. Bear’s story, probably a singleton as there’s no need for a further installment, looks at one woman’s determination to travel hundreds of miles, across inhospitable terrain, to be reunited with her husband and daughter following the near-collapse of civilisation follow a devastating flu outbreak.
It would make a good tv series, in the mould of the 1970s British TV series ‘Survivors’ whose sudden fond rememberance of watching with my decades-departed mother in the 1970s has left me in a warm glow.
